New Executive Order's Harsh Impact on the Undocumented
While most people are talking about the travel ban, you should not ovelook another
issued by the President on 1/25/17. The Order calls for the detention
and deportation of any undocumented individual simply charged with a crime
even if it has not been adjudicated in a court of law. Under the Obama
administration, only undocumented immigrants
of serious crimes were considered a prioritry for deportation. Prior to
pleading guilty to any crime, you should seek the advice of an immigration
lawyer. We have also begun to hear stories of ICE raids in local communities.
ICE denies that they are taking action in light of the Executive Order
but the activity in local communities continues.
